Buster Keaton stars in this comedy as the captive of hostile Indians.
His captors tie him to a stake and prepare him for death by fire.
Keaton moves with the stake as the Indians try frantically to place the firewood around him.
When he survives the flames due to his fire-resistant clothes, Keaton is made a member of the tribe and named Little Chief Paleface.
He then foils the scheme of unsavory oil speculators to steal the land from his Indian companion.
This is one of Buster's best capers, for sure. Thanks to www.k-otic.com for the fine taste, and consistent supply.
Question, though: Can anyone here confirm that there is no audio included this, and other Buster Keaton flicks available here? I D/L'd the MPEG2 version, and my system cannot seem to find an audio track.

Another Keaton Fun Flick!
Gotta love this guy. Took me a few viewings of Keaton films to learn an appreciation for his stuff, but now I consider this guy a genius. You won't be disappointed in this short.
